In The Flow Short
on the fence
while i like these shorts, i find them to be limited in what i can use them for. they seem extremely short, perhaps because i'm 5'10" with a booty, but they've been retired from the gym into my lounging wardrobe for now. they're incredibly comfy and wick sweat super quickly so i bought the crops which i love.
i would venture to guess that on tall frames they just look inappropriately short. i would still recommend the boogie shorts before i would suggest these to someone.

Fantastic for hot yoga, yoga, the gym, and runs
Lululemon - are you trying to take the title of "best shorts ever made" from the boogie shorts? If so, excellent job, you ALMOST did it!
Let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of the boogie shorts, which I have been wearing since 2003-2004, with some of those originals still in my closet. I love the colors, cut, style, and quality of the boogie shorts, so keep that in mind when checking out my review. I personally prefer my shorts to fit like a second skin and I don't mind them being very short, I simply want a good looking, no fuss short. If you do not like shorty shorts like the boogie shorts, then you probably won't like these.
If, however, you like tight fitting shorty shorts, then definitely check these out. The fabric is extremely comfy and stays in place even when running, at the gym (even with squats), or in yoga class. I do not have any CT problems in these either, but I've never understood what the big deal is - we all have the same parts!
These are a bit shorter than the boogie shorts, so if you're self conscious about coverage or if people stop you on the street to ask you "are you smuggling cantaloupes in your jeans" then they may not work for you. I'm 5-8, 120ish, and I have some muscular legs from squats, runs, stairs, and lunges, and they work great for me.
Last, but not least, these shorts will lift and shape your booty like no other shorts (except the boogies) ever can.

Great for Hot Yoga!
These shorts are SHORT, SHORT, SHORT, but they fit like an amazingly comfortable second skin and are great for hot yoga. They lose one star though because they have a slight rolling problem, which can make focusing on your practice difficult.

so stoked to wear these shorts to bikram. initially liked the fit and the cut? a little short for doing forward bends but got used to it by the end of my first class wearing them. unfortunately tried to wash on gentle and the entire seam holding together the waistband unraveled.

These are too short for me, they seemed fine until about 20 minutes into my Bikram class. I have a few older pairs of medium length Lulu shorts and wonder why they no longer carry a medium length. There's the 1 7/8" (Boogie) and 5 1/8" (Groove) inseam, no middle of the road. How about a 3" inseam for the ladies that don't want that space where the rear end meets the top of the thigh to be on show? I have the Groove as well and it's not ideal for me for Bikram...

Great for hot yoga
I got these as a gift for birkram yoga in heathered cornflower. They are great and a nice change from the black shorts I normally wear to class. I like the thick waistband and the stretchy material. They are a bit shorter than the boogie shorts, but higher in the waist. Regarding the comments that they are short, they are, but at my studio these are about the right length and many wear shorts even shorter, if that is possible. I got the same size as my boogie shorts - 4. They don't roll up on me.

Way to SHORT!!!
I absolutely love the fabric of the "in the flow" products!
Love the waistband, love the seamless construction, but please make these in a longer length!!!
It is a problem for us older yogi's who need to wear shorts, but aren't 18 years old and want their butt showing!!!
Maybe a 2.5 inseam would be a bit better, or even a 3 inch.
Just saying. I can't wear the Boggie Shorts either for the same reason, so I am using the Reverse Groove short which are longer in length, a bit too long as I have to roll them up, and the problem with them is that the smallest size is a 4 and I am 5"5, 110lbs, and need a size 2.
I might have to resort to going back to NIKE for my shorts.
PLEASE MAKE A YOGA SHORT a little longer!!!!

I absolutely LOVE the In The Flow shorts for hot yoga! I adore the higher rise waist (very flattering especially when you're sweating and your yoga shirt starts clinging to you!) and the thick, stretchy material.
I normally wear a size 4 in the Boogie Shorts and I ordered 4's in the In The Flows as well. Keep in mind the In The Flow is a lot thicker material so it takes a couple hot yoga classes to get them fitting perfectly.
I have five pairs and still want more. :)

Not what I thought they would be
I love lulu lemon clothing and needless to say have purchased quite a bit of their product for use in yoga and at the gym. However, that being said I am very disappointed with this short as they roll up so easily! Not only did they make me feel quite uncomfortable in the class, but it was rather embarrassing to have to keep rolling them down to keep me from exposing my bottom half to others in the class.
Not impressed and would not recommend purchasing this product.

Short Short Shorts!
I bought these shorts, intending to wear them when I go to hot yoga. Generally I like the fact that they don't roll down from the waist when I practice compared to other shorts I own, however they tend to ride up a little too much when in downward dog and show off the buns... for that reason, I no longer wear them to class.
On the other hand - I still LOVE them! I wear them around the house to clean, under dresses, walking in the park on a hot day, or when I workout at home. They are so comfortable and breathable. Even though I don't wear them to the yoga studio they are a must have.
